Curling is a friendly social game. You shake hands at the beginning. You shake hands at the end. During play you should not distract your opponent. Stand on the sidelines, near the center of the sheet, or on the ends behind the house. If you hit a rock you’re your broom or foot, YOU should say so; it happens all the time. More tips can be found on the Etiquette page.
